Question 4 1 pts Again, combining the heat equations with the heat flow equation, we find that the difference in the temperature between the sample (or Polly) and the cold bath followed an exponential decay, i.e., Tdir = (constant) - Setting time equal to 0 tells us that the prefactor (constant) out front simply is the initial temperature difference. Knowing the decay constant from the previous question and the temperature difference at some later time, then, we can find the time it takes for the difference between the sample's (Polly's) internal temperature and the bath's temperature to reach some specific value. According to the data you took at the (possible) crime scene and your answer to the previous problem, determine how many hours (to the nearest hour) Polly has been deceased (in hours, to the nearest hour)? Again, Polly's and the water bath's initial temperatures were 37 C and 2 C, respectively, and the final temperatures you measured were 13 C and 7 C. Hence, you could determine

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
